KTM Reveals NEW X-BOW Program
Reiter Engineering and KTM have revealed further details in the ramp up to the on-track debut of the X-BOW GTR. The GT4-spec car’s first on-track test is scheduled for later this month, with its SRO Balance of Performance test scheduled for March.
The car will be available to customers in April. A list price has been revealed of 139,000 Euros (USD158,000). Additionally, an image of the car with its full body has been revealed.
“First of all I have to compliment all those who have been involved at KISKA, at KTM Technologies and the KTM Sportcar GmbH who have all worked without a break, just as my own people have really done a perfect job in the shortest possible time,” said Hans Reiter, Reiter Engineering owner.
“We are now in the end phase and if we can keep almost exactly to our self imposed, extremely tight schedule, it is looking good. In keeping with this program, the first tests are planned in mid to late February.”
The GT4-spec car likely would be eligible for SRO’s GT4 European Championship, Pirelli World Challenge, British GT Championship, or VLN. The road going X-Box was launched way back in 2008 this road legal go-cart weighed a mere 790kg. Powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged TFSI engine sourced from Audi, the X-Bow was good for 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds thanks to the 240bhp and 310NM of torque on tap.
